Cleveland police released video of a woman they say pulled a gun on a barber because her 7-year-old son’s haircut was taking too long.

“I got two clips. I’ll pop you,” the woman is heard telling her son’s barber, a student at the Allstate Barber College, where the incident took place on April 14, Fox 32 Chicago reported on Friday.

Cleveland police are now looking for the woman.

They say the woman pulled the weapon after complaining several times about how long it was taking to cut her son’s hair.

“When she pulled out her gun she said, I’m allowed to carry a concealed weapon, I have a license to carry, but then one of the other students said there’s no need to bring it out,” Marilyn Medina, an instructor at the shop, told WEWS-TV.

The station reported that the woman put the gun away, got her son after his haircut was finished, and left the shop quickly.

Medina said she still can’t believe what happened.

“For a $6 haircut? You’re doing all this?” she told the station. “I was afraid. You never know the intention she had, if she was really going to shoot, if she was really going to do something.”
